We had the party during the week in the late morning as a play date-type party so the foods we offered our guests were more brunch-based. You know, a little breakfast-y and a little lunch-y…and perfect for small hands to snack on while playing.
For the mommas, I offered mini spinach quiches all pretty and dainty. As well as an herb dip with veggies and a nice, big fruit salad. Hey we gotta keep it a little healthy for the wee ones!
Since it was a morning party, I didn’t want to go too wild on the sweets which was so hard for me since I LOVE sweets. So I compromised with myself and made these bite-sized peanut butter thumbprints. I figured since they were itty bitty it was ok to have a big platter of them, hahaha.
And then as a party favor we gave all of our guests these cute little cupcakes-in-a-jar that I made and frosted and then added some fun sprinkles chosen by the birthday girls. Ok, yeah it’s sugar to the max but at least it was to eat at home later in the day and not at 10 in the morning. We are still friends, friends? right? 🙂
Being the ultimate party decor nerd, I made a whole bunch of cloth napkins from Seaside as well. How fun will these be to take on a picnic later?
And used some pretty ruffly lace trim to hang them with. This was probably one of my favorite ways to add a little vintage fun to the decor.
And if you know me, you know I don’t think a kid’s party is complete without some kid-friendly fun. So thanks to my friend Denise’s brilliant idea, I made a few potato sacks and decorated them with some ruffle-y fun in different fabrics from the Seaside line for the kids to run races in the back yard. It was the perfect day to sit outside and watch a few potato sack races 🙂
We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better day to have this party.
The weather was absolutely perfect and we were able to enjoy blue skies and sunshine along with all our wonderful friends.
